(Modified from a recipe posted on by Sherry Yokim, March '93)

I wanted a recipe with both flour and oatmeal and this one is wonderful. I put some of the topping in the middle to absorb some of the juice. I use Macintosh appples.

Preheat oven to 350F. Butter an 8" square baking dish.

1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c softened butter or margarine

Mix dry ingredients together. Add butter. Blend well with a fork.

Prepare the apples:
4 cups peeled, sliced apples (my apple peeler/corer/slicer comes in handy!)
Add sugar, cinnamon to taste. (for me: 1/4 - 1/3 c brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon)

Arrange half the apples in the baking dish. Sprinkle about 1/3 of the topping (below). Add the rest of the apples. Spread the remaining oat mixture on top of apples; press down lightly. Bake until topping is brown and apples are tender when tested with a fork, about 30-40 min.

Do I really have to mention that warm apple crisp is outrageously good with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream? :)

Suggested use for leftovers: Apple Crisp Pancakes! Add dollops of the apple crisp to prepared pancake batter. This is a favorite in my house, although more likely I add a packet of Quaker Apple Crisp Oatmeal to the batter (and a bit more milk).
